    Nvidia Quadro M5000 and M4000 graphics cards expected in Aug

    The new workstation cards will probably be launched at the SIGGRAPH 2015 event.

    I hate how cloudy is the info on the performance of those cards.

    I would love to see more reviews on the pro GPU side

    it's pretty easy really, the m5000 will likely be a slightly lower clocked gtx980, maybe a gtx980ti if lucky, the m4000 probably a slightly lower clocked gtx970 although they may push the boat out on 980. The m6000 is a slightly lower clocked titan x with ecc memory. Both with ecc instead of normal gddr5 and a price roughly 4-5x the usual gtx price

    In games they will perform the same or slightly worse than their gtx counterparts and in 3D programs you may see a slight improvement due to better driver support.

    last time I checked I have seen specific application to skyrocket with those cards, so this is my question and this is what I want to see from reviews.

    Which applications can benefit and if I need to care about a gpu like that, considering the applications I use.

    that was likely double floating point calculations, the K series (keplar) had this fully unlocked in quadro versus 1/32 iirc in the desktop cards (except original titan, that was fully unlocked too).

    The M series doesn't have space for this (even nvidia says it's better to use K series for dp calcs) meaning the m quadro and maxwell gtx are pretty much identical apart from eec ram, clock speeds and maybe a better quality binned gpu.

    In programs like iray where the gpu is used to render imagery the performance of a titan x is actually higher than a m6000, Link, this is down to only requiring single point precision. The increased clock speed makes that small difference in results, otherwise like I say they're identical except eec ram and maybe quality of gpu chip.
